I’m awash in games at this point. The three-day weekend gave me time to gorge myself on my entertainment of choice, and so pretty much everything I put up this week is going to be related to amusing one’s self with the help of a computer.
I apologize to those who are sick of Jade Empire, but I have another week of Jade Empire blather to stuff down your gullet. This will be a difficult time for all of us (except me.) but I’m sure we’ll get through it somehow.
Also, this behavior has even infected the webcomic, so that we can expect videogame-themed DMotR this week. I’m sorry. There’s nothing to be done about this.
